Full description
After boarding your transportation in Reykjavik, make your way to Thingvellir National Park. Once there, explore a UNESCO World Heritage site where the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia are pulling apart and creating a rift valley with dramatic lava rock formations. It's also the site where Iceland's first parliament was founded, more than 1000 years ago. From Thingvellir, move on to Laugarvatn where you can take a soak in the comfortably warm pools. For almost a century, locals in the community of Laugarvatn have been enjoying the healing powers of natural steam from a geothermal field at the edge of the lake. Built over this geothermal area, the Laugarvatn Fontana wellness center features geothermal steam rooms, hot pools, and outdoor mineral baths, as well as a fantastic view over the lake. You'll also find Fontana café, which offers a nice selection of healthy and locally produced delicacies and refreshments, such as soup of the day and trout from the lake. Feel free to just enjoy the facilities without going to the baths if you would prefer to not get wet. Next, head to the awesome Gullfoss Waterfall, a powerful waterfall with a rich history that your expert guide will share with you. Take a short walk down a pathway and get close enough to feel the mist of glacial water on your skin. Then, continue on to the Geysir geothermal area and discover the very active geyser, Strokkur, which erupts every few minutes. Enjoy a guaranteed opportunity to see an eruption up close before returning to Reykjavik.
